According to Boyan Slat, the increased efficiency of the system, allows for the cleanup of half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years.
Dutch foundation The Ocean Cleanup announced it will start extracting plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch with a new concept: Floating Screens. The new developed technology is based on floating ‘anchors’, instead of the initially planned fixed anchors.
Series of floating anchors (two black structures) are to keep the screen in place.
The research team intends to lower the integral costs of PV-modules, by developing a worldwide unique AAA-class In-Line steady state solar simulator (ILSS) prototype for the PV-industry that is validated on criteria for test speed (5 modules/minute), test accuracy, heat development, maintenance and lamp replacement costs.
Why do we need an automated test-measurement system for Solar modules? PV-module manufacturers require automated inline testing equipment that provide accurate information about PV-module performance with industrial robustness and low testing cost per module.
Several factors affect a cell’s conversion efficiency value, including its reflectance efficiency:
The battery is developed including high energy density thermochemical materials that can supply required heating, cooling and domestic hot water for a dwelling with up to 100% renewable energy sources (e.g. the sun) throughout the year. Read More
During his diving holliday in Greece, he found more plastic bags than fish. Now he is 21 and CEO of a high-profile company whose mission is to clean up the incredible amount of plastic floating around in the oceans.
This Prototype developed to CleanUp the Oceans, can be a real game changer.
Since today, the first prototype of the ocean cleanup installation is ready to test.
It’s an invention ofBoyan Slat, with which he wants to clean up the plastic debris in the oceans.
Instead of an installation of one hundred kilometers in length, this scale model is a one hundred meters long prototype which is posted for the Dutch coast in the North Sea. Read More
